I’ve been trying to get a bootable system on my Drive. Paragon Backup & Recovery and Ubuntu. Both Don’t work. Partition is FAT32 and marked active. The best i can get is a “Non-system disk, press any key…”. I am afraid this is due to the hidden partition. Anyone tried to boot from a Drive with SmartWare too?
I wanted to use the drive in my company for rolling out fast sysprep-Images on our ~100 machines in case of software problems. I guess WD-Drives aren’t that suitable for professional use. Other Threads on this community intensify this impression. Too bad! miscellaneous benchmarks of the HD were really promising. I’ll send the drive back today and warn other people in future… =(
